Thank you!

You’re right about the tying... They’re my go-to whenever I get frustrated with more complicated / hackled patterns. I don’t know why I struggle so much with palmering hackle?!! It’s frustrating.

The great thing about midges, is they’re simple AND catch plenty of fish!!

I got some of these Magic Quills to try and so far I think they are pretty cool, I like how they are clear so I can dictate the color with the underbody. Here are a few patterns I came up with just messing around with them.

Olive Quill Hare's Nymph


Limeade Nymph


Rusty Root Beer Nymph

The nymph and streamer have been around for many years; took the back end from Martin Jorgensen’s version and went from there.

thread - Veevus 8/0 black
tail - hen badger
rib - small wire silver
body - tinsel silver

Lol - I know but, I got the pattern from a Fly Tyer book so, I feel vindicated 😉😂😂

Gave this Sedge pattern another try today... The hackle needs work but, I feel better working with the deer / elk hair so, that’s progress!!

That fly book wasn't put out by a foam manufacturer was it?? Asking for a friend! 😉
